More Information
Herbert Hoover had a lifelong passion for fishing, beginning in his boyhood. The sport gave relief from first the pressures of business and civil service and later the presidency. He fished throughout the United States, in California, Oregon, Key West, and North Carolina; founded the Cave Man Camp, a spot for powerful Republicans at Bohemian Grove, north of San Francisco; and had a hideaway near the Upper Rapidan River in Virginia, where he could fish for trout as an escape from the stress of Washington, D.C. In the last year of his life, he wrote a small book about fishing. Includes never-before-published photos and an interview by Senator Hatfield, who spent time at Bohemian Grove.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"Wert's own knowledgeable enthusiasm about the places where Hoover fished, as well as his tireless research in the local newspapers, diaries, and other rarely-used records from which he has assembled the story of Hoover's passion for fishing, make this book unique. Fishermen will love it; other readers will find it a painless introduction to the life and career of the thirty-first president." ---K. A. Clements, author of Hoover, Conservation, and Consumerism
